Programme in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders
Duke-NUS Medical School (Duke-NUS), Singapore’s only graduate-entry medical school, was established as a landmark collaboration between two world-ranking institutions of higher education – Duke University and National University of Singapore. Duke-NUS provides innovative education and impactful research to enhance the practice of medicine in Singapore and beyond. Through its strategic partnership with Singapore Health Services (SingHealth) which includes the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), the School is able to leverage its joint capabilities and infrastructure to develop outstanding clinical education programmes and cutting-edge research collaborations that translate fundamental science into better health. Duke-NUS and its partners have created an academically-based Programme in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disorders (CVMD) designed to serve as a national and international resource of excellence in heart disease and diabetes in particular. The mission of the Programme faculty is to conduct high-level basic and applied research, and to train graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and clinician-scientists in the disciplines relevant to cardiovascular and metabolic disorders. Duke-NUS and its partners provide state-of-the-art research facilities, including metabolic phenotyping and advanced preclinical and clinical imaging capabilities.
We are seeking an individual with exceptional scientific credentials and leadership skills to head the CVMD Programme. The Programme Director will provide leadership, including engagement with the broader biomedical community in Singapore and with Duke University; strategic hiring and programme development; medical school and graduate education; faculty mentoring; budgetary and space planning.
